I wrote to Dan - and his wife some time this summer but have had no answer yet my last letter from them was in the winter, they were well and busy. The little girl was attending the kindergarten and enjoying it there. Joanna was well when last I heard and Bernice was getting on fine in her new home. I heard of your Helen's third son. You are rich in grandson's John. I am glad that her health is so good at Daggett. Trusting that you are in usual health I am affectionatelySarah[1]Pacific Grove, Calif.August 7th 1914.My dear brother John:-That fine box of fruit you sent me arrived yesterday and I send you many thanks. You may be sure all will be the more enjoyed because you sent them. I am often thinking of you and wondering if you are quite strong again. I had quite a surprise the other day. I had gone out in the afternoon and when I got home I found that Marjorie had come here to attend the Y.W.C.A.[in margin: Love to Wanda and to Helen when you write her.]05813

There are about 400 young ladies so you may be sure there are plenty opportunities to do things. She can only get away for about two hours in the afternoon when she comes for a little stay. They have lower rates on the train during the convention. The Grove is a busy place, so many visitors from[3]the interior come for a stay where the weather is cool. Mr & Mrs Reeder from Martinez is here also others of their friends came for a while.Neither David or Ette have been feeling well for some time though they are better now than they have been. I had a letter from Mary a short time ago. They were well as usual, her daughter Helen had gone to Evanston, Ill. to attend the midsummer term at the University. That will be near enough so that she and Grace can have a visit
